Modern Warfare 3
"Elite" premium subscribers on 360 are getting a brand new Spec Ops mission and three new Faceoff missions tomorrow. That's according to the Twitter account of Infinity Ward Executive Producer Mark Rubin, who named
the three maps "Vortex," U-Turn," and "Intersection," and the mission "Arctic Recon."
Activision's official content calendar
isn't updated to reflect Rubin's tweet just yet, but we expect it'll show up not too far from now. Despite the calendar showing three pieces of content – dubbed "map," "mission," and "classified" – don't panic
. Rubin said "those guys need to update the categories to be more accurate," which translates to "I swear this is really the truth, regardless of what that silly old calendar says."
As always, the content will show up a bit later for MW3
players on PlayStation 3 and PC, per Microsoft's long-standing exclusivity agreement
with Acti. We reached out to the publisher for more information, screens and video, and will update this post when we know more.Update:
The Infinity Ward Twitter account
just dropped the image above of Spec Ops mission "Arctic Recon," and said that only two of the three Faceoff maps Rubin spoke of – "U-Turn" and "Vortext" – will go live tomorrow. The same account posted earlier that three Faceoff maps are included. We're trying to clarify the situation with Activision.Update 2:
The tweet was deleted and updated
to reflect all three maps. Okay then, to be clear: three Faceoff maps ("Vortex," "U-Turn," and "Intersection") and one Spec Ops map ("Arctic Recon").
